I have been a caregiver for over a year and a half at a Assisted Living facility in Chino Hills. Nine months ago I advanced to a Med-tech. As a Med-tech I am responsible for passing out meds to residents on a timely manner and following Federal and facility regulations. I find working with people a pleasure, and I truly enjoy and look forward to their company every time I start my work day. About 5 yeas ago I cared for a very close friend who came down with Alzheimer's. As heartbreaking as it was to experience her condition, we were able to share some great memorable times together. I learned a lot fr om her and I am very glad that as a friend I was able to help her live a life outside of a facility. My friend was able to live in the comfort of her own home and loved our daily walks and going out to city functions, I believe she enjoyed every moment we spent together. The love of helping her out, is what brought out my love in caring for others, I will continue to help and care for others to the best of my ability as long as I can. ... more
